"I would recommend Mahoney Environmental to anyone in our business who wants
to check one more thing off their list knowing the job will get done

Joseph Rosetti, Corporate Chef - Harry Caray's Restaurant Group

"I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how happy I am that we decided to put this system into the restaurant. After the initial setup this has honestly been the most hands off piece of major equipment we've installed."

Donna Lee from Brown Bag Seafood

"I gained back all that storage space … and handling hot oil was always a pain. It’s so slick … hit a button to fill the fryers … hit a button to empty the fryers. No brainer!"

Owner, Mike Stolfe — Connie’s Pizza

"After testing the Mahoney Direct Connection system at our first restaurant, our staff fell in love with the flip of a switch solution. No one has to haul hot oil outside in bad weather and/or the dark.

Since then, we have installed Mahoney systems at all 18 of our Wendy's, and never experience any problems. Using their equipment is a no brainer."

Jason Graber, Facilities Director — Wendy’s

"We value Mahoney Environmental's sense of integrity, their equipment, and their ability to execute."

Valerie Hogan, purchasing manager for Buffalo Wild Wings.

"Our new restaurant is doing well and with a busy Saturday night we were concerned we would need service on a trap before Sunday Called Saturday night and they had someone here @ 730AM on a Sunday morning. Great job, great customer service much appreciated."

Ed Gricus

"Excellent, I rate this company a 10 over and over again. Customer friendly and reasonable prices."
